street date: august 21st, 2012
originally released as a cdr in 2007, unchained is the project of nathaniel davis.
|the songs are constructed from the practice tapes of two bands i was playing in at the time, gateway evening colours (with alex farrill on drums and brian house on bass) and innocent delights (with miles huston on drums and vocals and sam mehran on keyboard and guitar).|
in both bands i was playing guitar through a no-input mixer setup. gateway evening colours was working on a kind of deep blues / country-rock noise-wall sound, very minimal and 'jammy'. innocent delights was less rock-ish, more free, more psychedelic. the majority of the songs consist of loops cut from gec and id practice tapes, cut-and-pasted with a computer wave editor, and also eq'd and tweaked on a computer. while the source tapes were collective efforts, the editing process was my own solipsistic endeavor.
what i wanted to do was isolate moments of group-improvisational clarity, and cut and paste them into a larger composition. it was this combination of the non-control of group improvisation with the hyper-control of cutting and pasting alone on a wave editor that intrigued me. instead of developing compositions through the act of improvising, here the improvisations themselves become the compositions ...
